I just started going to Dr. Rice a few weeks ago with
annoying back pain that I have been putting off and just couldn't
put up with it any longer.
Finding Dr. Rice was "written in the
stars"; as they say. After a professional evaluation, he began to
work his magic. I went in for back and neck pain and this Doctor
fixed things I didn't think could be fixed.
In less than a week, my
sinus issues (I thought I had allergies and had been treating that
way for more than 10 years!) had completely disappeared! I have had
chronic issues with my right thumb as well and POOF! Gone! Not to
mention lower back pain after walking for a while.
Dr. Rice seems to
know exactly what is wrong, even if you don't mention it, and heals
the WHOLE of you, not just what you think is wrong. I feel very
blessed to have found Dr. Rice and will continue treatment with him
for as long as I can to keep the WHOLE me up to snuff!
Dr. Rice! I am so grateful I found you!
